THANKFUL THURSDAY: QUILT MARKET HERE WE COME!

May 19th, 2016 by Suzanne @ Camelot

Have you ever been in a local park during a football practice?  It’s something to see, I have been watching my 13 year old boy going to practices and matches for the past 4 years and I am just amazed every time I see them work out until shear exhaustion and going back on the field simply because the coach asked.  And hearing their team cheer at the end… What a rush.  I understand how being part of that team is important to him, it gives him a sense of belonging

And I have to admit, I feel the same way when we get ready for Quilt Market. That’s the quilter’s Jamboree!  Our time to meet everyone and share our passion for quilting.

We at Camelot Fabrics have spent numerous hours preparing our booth with great detail to present our new collections.  We simply can’t wait to show you the fabrics, the quilts, the clothing and let’s not forget the cute toys.  So please drop by booth # 1209 and say hello!

If you are a Quilt Shop owner, you will want to stay just a bit longer so that we can present all of our lines as well as some marketing ideas we have to help you promote your wonderful store!

That’s right!

While other fabric companies are setting up promotions directly to consumers, we would like to have a different approach.  We would much rather promote the local quilt shops that work hard every day to provide the best service to their customers.  How are we planning to help?  We have two marketing strategies that can help get customers into your store and buying fabrics.

Let’s start by getting them into the store:

E-mail us photos of your quilt shop featuring our Camelot Fabrics.  Add a brief description of your shop and its location and things to do in your area.  Once a week, we will be featuring a Quilt Shop on our social media (Blog, facebook, Twitter, Instgram and Pinterest).

Then let’s get you selling more fabrics:

If you like the projects that are in our booth, than you will love the idea of having some of the quilts, clothing and toys featured in your own shop!  We are preparing a series of trunk shows that will be moving on a monthly basis along with kits on consignment. So make sure to sign up during the show as space is limited.

As you can see, there are many reasons why you simply have to stop at booth # 1209.  If you can’t make it to the Spring Quilt Market but would like to participate in our marketing strategy, simply send us an e-mail at marketing@camelotfabrics.com.

Just doing our part to help you sell more of our fabrics.
